Philodendron ‘Black Cardinal’ Care

Light: Provide bright, indirect light for your ‘Black Cardinal.’ It can tolerate lower light conditions but thrives in medium to bright, filtered sunlight. Avoid direct sun exposure, as it can scorch the leaves.

Temperature: Maintain a warm environment. ‘Black Cardinal’ prefers temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure that the pot has drainage holes to prevent overwatering and root rot.

Humidity: Philodendron ‘Black Cardinal’ benefits from higher humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves, using a humidity tray, or placing a humidifier nearby, especially in dry indoor environments.

Soil: Plant your ‘Black Cardinal’ in a well-draining potting mix with organic matter. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and a small amount of orchid bark or compost works well to provide adequate drainage and aeration.

Fertilizing: Feed your ‘Black Cardinal’ with a balanced, liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or halt fertilization in the fall and winter when the plant’s growth slows down.
